I want to make one thing PAINFULLY clear. I do not like or appreciate anthro art, mostly due to the stereotypical "furry" culture that tends to revolve around it.

But this blew me away. The fact that the Macaque has so much expression in its face, the pose and lineart are beautiful, and the level of accuracy and detail in each inch of it, makes me want to just say this: THIS IS BADASS. It has definitely earned a favorite from me. Also thank you for changing my view of anthro art, your gallery is incredibly beautiful.

I love the intensity in his expression. Could make a great Kung Fu Panda character (perhaps an immigrant from Japan to China?)

I've never liked anthropomorphs because the artists often portray them too cartoonish and I can't get into the character. Yours are so fluid and lovely; I can really see the humanity in them. The animals look natural in that body, assuming that role. I'm overly impressed. Stunning work.

haha i know, but one of my buddy said that my anthro look so weird because they look too real and humanist, it seem like the body and the head doesn't fit at all, haha. It's just different taste, but to me I like realistic anthro, a lil bit cartoonish like Black Sad comic is fine to me but I never get enough of the way people draw female anthro, pretty-human face with human hair style, I was kind of disappointed when I see this in Black Sad, thought not all of the female look like that, but mostly cat characters do.

my problem is when I make more character from the same species, breed..they all tend to look the same, well, how can you tell a different in features between two cow or two black cat, after all?

I have the same problem. I think something is pretty, so I tend to draw the same characteristics over and over, and then they look the same. I guess when you're trying to mold a species into a humanoid form it gets hard to make different features. Your aliens really impress me though. You should honestly be designing for a sci-fi series. I was looking at your Orid concepts and the colour schemes you come up with are just so stunning.

with species like tiger, it more easy to make a features different based on their stripes, dog and cat is bit hard but since they are a domestic species, I can come up with mixed breed and different features in the same species 
what harder is their expression , that's why most anthro artist choose to go with cartoonish style

Righteous . I always thought Macaques would make great anthros, because they have the most human like faces of any animal, including primates, & this is the best I've seen. It actually works very well, because the macaque's red face is a lot the makeup that Japanese warriors sometimes wore. I wonder what it would be like if you drew a macaque woman? You very rarely see attractive anthropomorphic primates.

I do draw a macaque female and other female primates, canine and primates are my main inspiration and a good source for anthro idea, they are vast in species and breed...and I could come up with a lot of thing such as characteristic based on their look


however, the way I draw anthro female primates is always different to canine or feline
